An MRI has reveled that Allen has a partially torn hamstring, and will have to sit out a few weeks: “Very disappointing,’ said Iverson, a 10-time NBA All-Star and one of the team’s key offseason acquisitions. ‘My whole thing is trying to make something positive out of a negative situation, and the way I see it is, I’m glad it’s happening right now than during the season. So that’s the only positive I can take out of the whole situation.’ Iverson suffered the injury coming to a jump stop during the team’s open intrasquad scrimmage at Birmingham Southern College on Sunday. He said the entire back of his leg turned ‘black and purple,’ and he underwent an MRI on Wednesday morning that revealed the damage.”
